2015 will be a good year of BEING HUMAN for digital marketers. The corporate-speak messaging is not engaging (perhaps even boring) and does not engage the audience.

In 2015, we will see more marketers incorporate human-speak into their messaging – be human in your videos, pictures, humor, and you need to get good at being human!

To be successful in 2015 consider the following:

  1. Before you publish anything check it for “being human”. Is your message filled with your jargon? If so then rewrite or re-script. Are the images the standard corporate imagery that could show up on a multitude of sites? If so then redo them to be more personal, engaging and exceptional.
  2. Craft interesting, engaging and value-added stories. Telling a story is something that humans have done since we learned to speak (as a species) and as humans we all enjoy a good story. Use stories to delight your audience.
